Regina v James Saunders Randall And William Saunders: 20 Jan 1855

Stat, 5 and 6 w. 4, c. 50, s, 27, enacts that the highway rate shall be upon property rateable to the relief of the poor, ‘provided that the same rate shall also extend to such woods* mines, and quarries of stone, or other hereditaments, as have heretofore been usually rated to the highways.’ — Held, that mines not rateable to the relief of the poor, opened in a parish since the passing of that Act, are rateable to the highway rate, if mines of a similar description were before the Act usually rated to the highways in that parish.
